Path to CRNA instructor ?Register Today!
- by murse916 Nov 28, '12I was just wondering how one became a CRNA instructor at a university. Do you need to get a DNP or will a master's degree suffice?

- Nov 29, '12 by missnurse01It depends upon what class you are thinking about teaching. The program I will start has phd's in their science classes as instructors (physiology, medicinal chem, etc). Otherwise, the other instructors that are CRNAs are either already phd's, dnp/dnap, or are in school now.

- Nov 30, '12 by ckh23I agree that it depends. Most of the instructors in my program have a Masters with only a couple with a PHD or DNP.
